My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

COLD Night! Cold Morning!
I went to bed early last night figuring I'd conserve on propane and cut down on having to charge the batteries so much. I turned the burner off and woke up at 3:00 and the thermometer on the clock said 30.7 degrees (In here). I braved the cold and lit the burner and then all was fair until I made coffee on it about 8:00. Then the damn carbon monoxide sensor started going off. I turned off the burner and cooled the place down by opening the door and then shut the door and lit it back up. It started going off again when the place warmed up a little and then I opened the door again. It just went off for the third time and I have the door open again.
Don't know how cold it got last night, but it had to have been PLENTY cold because the water in my 6 gallon jug outside was partially frozen and all of the gallon jugs were that way to. The sun is shining through the window now so maybe it will warm up in here some before long without the burner going.
